East Boldre: autumn colours, congenial evenings at the Turfcutters - by Bartley Barn guests

We have to share this great advertisement for autumn breaks in the New Forest in East Boldre, one of the New Forest's best kept secrets! Last week's Bartley Barn guests wrote: "What a lovely place to stay, whilst we explored the glorious New Forest in all its autumn glory. The colours were truly breathtaking and we took lots of photos to try and catch the autumnal colours of the forest. Evenings were spent at the Turfcutters enjoying their hearty food at very reasonable prices. No room for desserts or starters as mains are substantial. They made our two spaniels Willow & Jasmin very very welcome which is unusual these days in pubs where food is served so we really appreciated it. Local shop sells lovely bread and is very welcoming and has anything you may need. All in all a fantastic much needed break from the "Rat Race" of the south east of England. Many thanks to our welcoming hosts Jane & Bill." - email us too if you'd like more information too about our fabulous local pub the Turfcutters Arms, and our very own East Boldre Post Office & Stores.
